Can a candidate upload any kind of political content from his own Facebook account?
Yes, any political content in the form of messages, comments, photos or videos uploaded on the candidate’s own blogs, websites or social media accounts will not be treated as political advertisements and therefore would not require pre-certification under the law by the Media and Monitoring Committees. 1
